Reviews

Reviewer: I_h8_screen_names - - November 19, 2013
Subject: Teenagers in the 1950's and earlier.
Teenagers back then looked a lot older. I guess it is because of the hairstyles, and clothing.

This was a nice little slice of 1950's life.
I do like that the lesson is that your troubles aren't over just because you find you have things in common with others. The narrator reassures us that it is normal to have problems from time to time.

Subject: 60 Minutes' Mike Wallace is the Narrator
Notes on this page show Wallace as credited as "Myron L. Wallachinsky." This might raise some interesting questions.

The Wikipedia and IMDB does not mention this name at all at this time.

The Wikipedia states that Mike Wallace was born Myron Leon Wallace in 1918 (to parents whose original surname was Wallik according to Wallace's NYT obituary).

There is another copy of this film at the Internet Archive:

Another Coronet Film from the Prelinger Library is "How to Study." I am pretty certain Wallace narrates it also.
